Event description

Description

Ramadan is celebrated by over a billion people around the planet. During Ramadan, Iftaar is a time for family and friends break the fast together at sunset. In the spirit of this sacred month, people open their doors to strangers-- it is a time for kindness, hospitality and also a means to forge bonds of friendship and solidarity.

In reflection of these values of connection, acceptance, and friendship, MALA invites you to join us for an interfaith Iftaar, hosted in support of UNICEF USA. Regardless of your faith, religiosity, or cultural identity, we hope that you will join us at for this special Iftar in New York. Bring a friend, colleague, or a partner. Help us spread a message of hope and giving to create new and unique multicultural and interfaith encounters between Americans of all communities.


100% of all proceeds raised at this event will benefit UNICEF USA's fund for humanitarian aid in Yemen.

In Yemen, a child dies every 10 minutes from preventable causes. For the nearly 360,000 severely malnourished children under 5, any day could be their last. To meet children's urgent needs, UNICEF USA is ramping up support for 1.5 million of the country’s poorest families with emergency cash assistance to ward off extreme measures some families may be pressured into to survive, like putting their children to work or marrying off their girls.

UNICEF USA also remains vigilant in its protection of malnourished children, whose families struggle to care for with most of Yemen’s hospitals destroyed. For them, UNICEF nutrition centers are a lifeline where in 2018 over 345,000 children suffering from the most deadly form of malnutrition were brought back to life.

MALA and UNICEF USA remain committed to matters that affect the survival, protection, and development of children everywhere. Join us to share a meal and learn about the imperative work both organizations are doing, how YOU can become involved, and give back to those in most need.
